Investor Connect Podcast

On this episode, Hall welcomes Jimmy Frischling of Branded Strategic Hospitality. Before investing in early-stage companies, Jimmy has a career spanning just under 30 years in financial and capital markets. He started his career in investment banking with a firm called Kidder Peabody - which no longer exists - and was always on the sell-side working for firms such as Bear Stearns and Paine Webber. Jimmy then moved on to work with institutional and large banks with Florida Securities where he ran the US-structured credit team. There was a focus on debt and fixed income as well as illiquid, opaque and emerging asset classes.

In this episode, you’ll hear about Jimmy's path to investing in the hospitality technology sector as well as advice to new investors in the space. According to Jimmy, a key component is to be about people. Get to know the founder, the CEO and their leadership, the people they're surrounding themselves with, because that's going to be a big factor.
